bittorrent download 07/12; comparison is done with LB-10299;
“New Haven 9-17-1978” is 32 minutes of interview and 44 minutes of music in poor sound;
interview matches to d4 of that version with similar wav and spectral view and levels;
“traveling from Portland to New Haven 9-17-1978” matches to d3 of that version
with similar wav and spectral view and levels;
“xmas season 1977” matches to d2 of that but this has an extra second at the beginning not on that one;
they have sort of similar wav and spectral view except this has higher levels and runs slower;
“xmas season 1977 pt 2” matches to d1 of that;
they have sort of similar wav and spectral view except this has higher levels and runs slower;
they have different digital flaws

this has better sound than LB-1801 but it’s about 15 minutes shorter.”

This is one of the only candid interview tapes of Jerry in circulation. It starts with a journalist named Greg
Harrington asking some very intelligent questions about all types of topics and Jerry is very warm and generous during the interview. Later a few heads join the party and the tape keeps rolling. At one point someone sparks a jay and Jerry is inclined to smoke up with his new friends. What ensues is just hilarious as Jerry and company get progressively more stoned. This tape is a rare glimpse into the wonderful mind of Jerry Garcia. After listening to it, you will have a much better understanding of what it must have been like to be a member of the Grateful Dead, what was the process or lack of it for the band and who really is Jerry and what is his trip?

This is a wonderful part of my collection. I have seen a copy converted by someone else, but I have taken the time to convert a high bias 3rd GEN cassette to digital.


Note: Take special note to track 9 on disk 1. I Hope you enjoy Jerry’s opinion on the matter of tapping shows.

The source info, according to Ted: The Museum of TV & Radio in NYC dubbed his original reel-to-reel tape and a friend converted it to CDR.

Or, in more detailed fashion:

museum of tv & radio in nyc dubbed the original reel
to reel on to cassette for their listening archives
(museum of tv & radio in beverly hills also gets

a friend converted it to cdr also from the original
reel to reel (lost touch with him and never knew how
he converted analog to digital)

i recorded it at the kppc-fm 106.7 radio studio (at 99
south chester in pasadena, california near cal tech)
during the live broadcast on a scully tape deck (at
7.5 ips on quarter inch two track stereo 1.5 mil
acetate scotch audio tape); when the nrps song
louisiana lady was played on the scully tape deck in
the radio studio during the interview, the scotch
audio tape was moved to a similar scully tape deck in
the kppc-fm production studio down the hall to
continue taping the live broadcast; music played from
lps on turntables was scoped by stopping the tape
during the broadcast to make sure that the entire
interview would fit on our only blank tape available
at the time on a sunday afternoon.

Split into Tracks


His often difficult relationship with fans and interviewers isnít mere petulance or arrogance
or bad temper. It is a deep dissociation from the whole business of putting on a public face.
Paradoxically for such a great performer, he has a complete inability to perform ìVan Morrisonî,
the shaman-like figure of his songs, the conjurer of transcendent moments.

So you take him as you find him. And I find him courteous, engaged, oddly straightforward. All
he asks for is a cup of coffee and that we sit at the window of the hotel where we meet with a
view over Belfast Lough.

He looks as if he might have come straight from a boat in the bay, dressed in a well-worn green
waxed jacket and a fishermanís cap, a ruddy, wind-blown glow to his cheeks. The only disconcerting
thing about him is a kind of simplicity Iíve never encountered in anyone else Iíve interviewed,
the simplicity of someone who has no game to play, no impression to make, no line to sell, no image
to construct or maintain.
